Wendy and Lucy

Wendy and Lucy ★★★★

Wendy is kind of an aimless young woman. Broke and desperate to get out of Oregon and into Alaska she makes a boneheaded move and loses her trusted companion Lucy. Lucy is her dog by the way. Director Kelly Reichardt's naturalistic style is so good that the protagonist's mundane problems really feels like an epic odyssey here. Michelle Williams is just lovely here. Who wouldn't want to help her out? Bastards.
